Do I need to track my calories on this plan?

Updated by Steven Todd Smith

All of the recipes in the Meal Planner provide you with the ability to view nutritional information. We generally don’t encourage nutrient tallying and calorie counting, which can create more problems than they solve.

With a whole-food, plant-based diet, our advisors recommended that you eat until you’re comfortably satiated instead of counting calories. The higher water and fiber content of whole plant foods allows our bodies to more accurately gauge how much food we need to eat.

We have included a couple of articles below that you may find interesting.

If you have a condition that requires tracking, we have included a MyFitnessPal import option on each recipe page for convenience.
